Actually, it's not strictly speaking a "bad" link, but it passes through
a redirector that sends you, properly, to the new name for The Linux
Documentation Project, www.tldp.org, and advises you to click the
corrected link so when you bookmark you get a better entry.

If you, personally, are having troubles reaching www.tldp.org, you need
to check your internet routes:
	traceroute www.tldp.org
...this should tell you what system upstream of them is losing your bits.

However, thanks for the heads up;  we should update the navbar to point
at their current sitename.
